Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1865) Add the Data Store to the Jackrabbit API
Date Thu, 03 Sep 2009 08:05:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1865?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12750881#action_12750881

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-1865:
------------------------------------

My point here is that operations like garbage collection are IMHO not something that a JCR
client should be doing, especially when the implementation still doesn't have any access controls
and it relies on the client doing the right thing in the multi-repository case.

Nothing that we expose through a client-visible API should be able to break the internal consistency
of the repository.

Note that the garbage collection operation is in principle a "safe" operation so I'm not totally
opposed to putting it in a client-visible API, but until we either declare the multi-repository
data store configuration as unsupported or solve the obvious safety issue with this API I'm
quite reluctant to expose such functionality to all clients.

> Currently, the garbage collection is not part of the Jackrabbit API. However, the data
store garbage collection must be used once in a while if the data store is enabled. I propose
to add the required interfaces to the Jackrabbit API. This will also allow to call garbage
collection using RMI.
